How much does a shop sign cost?

We know shop signs can be confusing. You’re trying to set up / run your business and each sign maker you meet offers different advice, prices & promises! All you want is a clear guide of costs and options to help you make an informed choice.  Hopefully this page & it’s price guides will help you.

With regards to picking a sign maker, our advice is to look at their online reviews and see what customers are saying about them.   Our new sign manufacturing factory is packed with the latest sign making equipment, we’ve been established since 1971 and have made thousands of signs, but if our online customer reviews were not good… it means nothing (Spoiler alert: We’re very proud of our Google Review score).

Below you’ll find a summary of the main types of shop front signs along with a price guide for a typical shop sign.

Flat Panel Shop Sign

Available in any size

A flat panel is , quite literally, a sheet of material fixed to the front of your premises with graphics to the face.   It’s a low cost way of ensuring your shop sign is advertising to people walking / driving past 24/7.

‘Flat Panel’ doesn’t mean boring though and our graphic design team will ensure your shop front sign looks incredible for a long time indeed.

Price Guide: £350 – £800+

Shop Sign Letters

Made in house to any design

Flat Cut Letters are cut from a sheet of material (acrylic / foamex / aluminium / s.steel).

They can either be fixed flush to the panel or on locator pegs which give the impression of the text floating above the panel.

The photo here shows the words “Drunk Monkey Tattoos” all of which are mounted onto pegs , hidden on the reverse of the letters.

Price Guide: £550 – £1000+

3d Letters

3d Letters

Perfect for illumination or stand alone

3d sign letters look like they’re made from a solid lump of material but are actually hollow backed allowing for LED illumination to be mounted inside the letters.

When illuminated this gives a fantastic soft glow shining out of the back like a halo of light.

Material options are slightly more limited than flat cut lettering (acrylic / s.steel) but the aesthetics are outstanding.

Price Guide: £900 – £2000+

Folded Tray Shop Sign

Can be internally illuminated for extra impact

A very popular shop sign as there are many ways to enhance a folded tray beyond ‘just’ graphics to the face.

  • Stand Off Lettering (Built Up or Flat Cut).
  • Cut out Lettering, internally illuminated.
  • Flat Cut Lettering applied flat to face.
  • Mixture of the above.

Price Guide: £600 – £1800+

Shop Sign Light Box

Panel insert allows for sign to be updated

An aluminium frame (doesn’t rust) with internal LED illumination (no bulbs to change & low running cost).

An acrylic panel with graphics to the front allows light through and diffuses the light so that no ‘hot spots’ are visible.

Both the frame and the panel can be colour matched to suit your requirements.

Price Guide: £800 – £1200+

Pencil Light Illumination

LED illumination at low running costs

A pencil light down/up lighter is a tidy way of illuminating your shop sign without resorting to a lightbox.

The light comes from LEDs within a tube mounted either above or below the sign and shines back and across the face of the sign. This avoids shedding light needlessly away from your premises.
Available in lengths to suit the width of any sign.

Price Guide: £380+

    Of 5 quotes obtained Signet were the best on price. All the people that I dealt with either by phone or e-mail were polite and very knowledgeable of the products that they sell. I would definitely recommend to others in need of this product or service.

    If you are nervous or anxious about getting your signage done then these are the people who will put you at your easy with their friendly, helpful and patient approach they guided me through the process. They listened, asked questions and made suggestions to ensure they understood what I wanted the finished signage to look like. I loved the end product, so a huge thank you to you all.

    Really great quality and service from Signet Signs. They came and helped us re-do all of the signs in the GP surgery. I would definitely recommend them and have used them since for additional work.

    I was very happy with the level of service that I received from Signet Signs. The customer service was excellent – including the re-working of artwork prior to manufacture to get exactly what we wanted. We (Pitch Architects) will certainly use them again!

    Thank you so much Signet Signs. Sam and Kieran were awesome. We are a new business and needed some guidance with our designs and signs. We were guided every step of the way with advice from absolute professionals and nothing was too much trouble even when we asked for the almost impossible on a really tight time frame. Cannot recommend these guys and this company enough.
